2.20 Behham Architects Handicap Hurdle (5) 2m7f131y

Timeform Top Rated:
110 1. GARRANE Jeremy Scott Nick Scholfield
109§ 4. MOUNTAIN OF MOURNE Linda Blackford James Best
108 2. ABBEYGREY Evan Williams Miss Isabel Williams (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Garrane got off the mark in good style at Taunton last week, and looks capable of following up under a penalty. Courtinthemiddle could play a part if ready to roll on his return, with Phangio another to consider.

2.50 Foresters By Steve White Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m11y

Timeform Top Rated:
130p 2. AIR NAVIGATOR Tom George Paddy Brennan
129 1. THE LAST DAY Evan Williams Adam Wedge
122p 8. KINGS MONARCH Kerry Lee Jamie Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Air Navigator's useful bumper form shows that he has plenty of ability and he seems sure to have learnt from an encouraging fourth over hurdles at Doncaster last month. C&D winner The Last Day should play a leading role, while others to mention include Another Emotion and Kings Monarch.

3.25 Edward Richard Turner Memorial Maiden Hurdle (5) 2m3f100y

Timeform Top Rated:
140 9. SAMBURU SHUJAA Philip Hobbs Richard Johnson
136p 5. GARRAN CITY David Pipe Tom Scudamore
132 7. OCEAN COVE Fergal O'Brien Paddy Brennan

Analyst's Verdict:
Garran City took a while to make it to the track following his point win 2 years ago, but he offered plenty to work on when third in a C&D novice last month, and is taken to improve past Samburu Shujaa. Of the rest, Ocean Cove could easily bounce back with the tongue tie discarded.

4.00 Foxall Family Handicap Chase (4) 2m3f98y

Timeform Top Rated:
129p 4. MARKET ROAD Evan Williams Miss Isabel Williams (7)
128 5. THE BAY BIRCH Matt Sheppard Stan Sheppard (3)
126§ 1. WIZARDS BRIDGE Colin Tizzard Harry Cobden

Analyst's Verdict:
Market Road continued his story of relentless progress when winning for the fifth time this season over C&D last month and he remains one to keep on side. The Bay Birch has been much improved also since joining her current yard and rates a big threat.

4.30 Newport County Supporters Handicap Hurdle (4) 2m3f100y

Timeform Top Rated:
135p 1. LADY KARINA Venetia Williams Charlie Deutsch
134 2. BRYNMAWR Colin Tizzard Paddy Brennan
133 8. MR FITZROY Jo Davis James Davies

Analyst's Verdict:
Lady Karina, a good winner on her return at Warwick in November didn't really get chance to show what she could do at Cheltenham the following month (fell sixth). She remains open to improvement and gets the vote to prove her revised mark a workable one. Brynmawr, who scored convincingly at Southwell 16 days ago, and the in-form Virginia Chick look the next best.

5.05 Haasco Gold Cup Handicap Chase (5) 2m11y

Timeform Top Rated:
111 2. BEALLANDENDALL Deborah Faulkner Nick Scholfield
109 1. MODELIGO Matt Sheppard Stan Sheppard (3)
108 3. LIGHTENTERTAINMENT Barry Brennan Dave Crosse

Analyst's Verdict:
Beallandendall won with quite a bit in hand over this C&D last month and remains unexposed over fences. Modeligo took a step back on the right direction behind that one there and is feared most.
